    Default texting problem.

    Hello everyone! I picked up a gs4 yesterday, upgrading from a BIONIC (pos)

    So far I have a lot of tricks to learn on this phone overall I like it even though the build quality is horrible. (exchanging mine already there is a divit in the camera lenses)

    My question is does anyone have an issue where it sometimes fails to send a text? Ive had it happen about 10 times in the past 12 hours. This virtually never happened to me on any other phone. Is there a fix ? Thanks

    What is your signal like? Is the phone number all there?

    Signal is fine. It just does it in the middle of text conversations.

    Funny because my wife always has that problem on her Motorola Razr Maxx and I don't and I have the same phone as her. Wonder if it's on Verizon's end.

    Picked one up yesterday too and also moved from a Bionic. No issues. Also just realized that there was a small plastic protective cover on the lens with a cutout. Removed it.

    Text Messaging Failed Notifications

    Looks to be the exact issue in the gs4 as the gs3. Phone tells me they failed but they are in fact received. Anyone else come across this yet?

    If you read the posts in that thread they are talking about at times the phone will say the message failed to send but in actuality it does go thru.

    Happened with my Galaxy Nexus too. I think it's just a Verizon problem.

    Constantly happened on my old Samsung Fascinate......So far I haven't seen this issue on my Galaxy S4.... Like someone said, I think it's more of a Verizon issue.

    Yes, I'm having this same problem. Got my phone thursday from Verizon, and text messages were sending fine. On Friday after noon, they started to get slower. And then this morning and today (saturday), the messages won't send, and will eventually say they failed. However, SOME of them do get through, because the person will answer me (even though it says it is still sending). Very frustrating. I understand that some devices will simply be defective, but its still annoying.

    I have tried restarting, but with no effect.

    Perhaps this is related. When my phone is failing to send texts, the speech-to-text does not work to type a text or to search using google now. This wasn't working yesterday, but I didn't think it was related. But now both issues are back.

    Both my phone, S3 and my wife's S4 would not send texts this morning. Rebooted both phones. Didn't fix it. They wouldn't send a text with more than three sentences. But shorter texts went through fine. I have no idea what the problem is. It must be on Verizon's end as I have never ever had this issue with my S3.

    I pulled my battery in a desperate fix, and it actually worked. I'm hoping it doesn't come back. Every time I send a text, my heart stops until it sends hehe

    Last night I sent a text to my wife and it shows it was sent in my message app but she didn't get it. Today I sent a text to my son and it shows as sent in my message app but he didn't get it. Could this be a phone issue? Never experienced this with my previous smartphone.

    I had a similar issue occasionally on my Cosmos 2 (not a smartphone by any means). The messages would show up on my phone as not sent but the other person would respond so they had most definitely been getting them.
